Late to the party on this one - but we are ordering as many of these as we can.

Have to agree with some of the other statements of those that know the method - this is AWESOME.
This is as clean as it gets and truly looks like real magic.

We are shipping Monday, the same as others - Free shipping in the U.S. (Free shipping on the Gold box worldwide)

Cannot wait until these get out to the Magic Community to see what you guys do with them. Exciting project, for sure.
Well done, Angelo!

Hello all.

Just to clarify a few things...

The box can be used to reveal up to a maximum of four predictions. Of course only one is used in the card trick in the demo. It can be used with any flat paper objects, so if you have another routine in mind, this box can work in conjunction with it.


Sorry, but that doesn't really clarify anything.

I know it's been said by some people, and maybe they have some inside knowledge, but it would help if you would just fill in the blanks.

There are a maximum of ______ outs, of which ____ outs can be revealed at the same time.

Now maybe the number that goes in both of those blank spaces is 4, but it would help if that was actually said in a straightforward manner.

I wouldn't worry about laypeople looking to these forums for clues. It's not in the nature of people who enjoy watching the occasional trick to go online and read dozens of pages to try and figure out something. Those who have read the last 7 pages have more than a passing interest in magic. And even if a few people get a little more info than they should, keep in mind that the real magic comes from the quality of the performance - the engagement and the experience - not the secret.

Warning: We will run out of new tricks in

Very nice. Some time ago, I built a wooden lock box that does something similar, but it has 8 outs. I will tell you that it was NOT easy to make.

This looks like a real gem, and the price seems really good.

One suggestion for you that I have used with my box: Go to your local craft shop and get one of those fancy corner punches. On your computer, type a page with four fortune cookie style quotes in large font. Underneath each one, in really small font, type something like "Your lucky card is ...". If you desire, you can print your information on the back. I would suggest that if you do this, print it in very light color font, so it almost looks like a watermark. Print the page and cut it into four squares. Use the fancy corner punch to make them look nicer.

Your participants are way more likely to keep it and talk about it later.

Why would you want to reveal any more than 1 of the outs [?]

If you reveal them all - then they are not outs

MoM will be running a BIG special offer on it when it launches later today, including free worldwide shipping..
Full details will be here from 8pm GMT:

Hope this helps

I guess there never was any special offer [unless being slightly more expensive than other places counts as a special offer?]

Also note you have two other listings, on your website, for 'the gift' [at slighly higher - than your own - prices] that say 'sold out'

Holy Moly MB is you are decent-at-best I am doomed. Smile Love your coin work and aspire to getting even close to what you do. Back to thread -- I agree I think Gift looks lovely and not turned off by # of outs greatly appreciate the honesty in telling us what it is so we know what we buy.

I'm a perhaps decent-at-best coin guy, but I do recognize magic when I see it, and this is quite magical. I love the simplicity of it, the fact that it seems self contained with little effort to make the magic happen. I love the aspect of the cards in the box as it lures the specs in and sends some subliminal messages while they remove it. Love that it's not just a trick done with cards, but that it can involve a lot of different predictions. I like the fact that it comes from the mind of a proven thinker in magic. I think I remember Angelo from his Tenyo(?) creations, and anyone that thinks like that is indeed coming up with this stuff from a another level, and so already I know it is ingenious. Plus it's a darn good closeup trick for a coin guy, heck, for anybody. Smile

I think his work(s) speak for itself, and I expect this to become another one of his elite classics.

Good job Angelo! Smile

God knows how some of the U.K. Dealers come up with the selling price

The official exchange rate $75 comes to GBP60:20

Most UK Dealers are selling it well over GBP70 !!


The $75 is excluding tax, even in the US they have to add sales tax to the price.


Actually several USA Dealers are offering Free World Wide shipping so ok you might have to wait a little longer but the difference in price is huge !

And if shipping out of US no tax is payable


Nope. Import duty, VAT and then a whopping processing charge get added on by the courier when the item arrives in the UK. Often customers get a letter instead of the package.. asks them to recontact them to pay the tax and charges before a new delivery date is given. It's a story I get emailed about all the time.. Smuggling does happen though.


////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

Just a Heads up for anyone who is going to Blackpool

I have found out you can order from US Dealer and pay the US Price and Pick up at Blackpool and only pay the USD75.00 / GBP60.20 and collect from the stand so no customs to worry about go to Vanishing inc USA website order and then select collect from Blackpool at check out

One Question what If the spectator Shuffles the deck then deals will this create a problem ? I know you instruct the spectator to deal the cards but what If they shuffle and deal ?
Thanks.

A simple false overhand shuffle does it, but to be honest I don't think you need to, the effect is so fair and clear the spectators don't stand a chance

Wow all the hype and it seems every dealer is looking to sell this
Not to difficult to work out how this works and I am sure that the box is very well constructed which probably reflects the price
Which in my opinion is very high
However which dealer to buy from ???
Easy Merchant of Magic with his special offer which is?
Yes (The most expensive of all dealers)
Why pay less than that

The Facebook Group to discuss ideas and routines and to brainstorm is http://www.facebook.com/groups/TheGiftOwnersGroup

Please note it is ONLY for owners so you will need to message me either on here, messenger or email with proof. Either a receipt, order summary or photo of the product once you receive it. Your request will be ignored if you don't provide proof.

Also it is VERY quiet in the group as no one physically owns one yet and had a chance to break it in and use it.

Cheers!
